It’s the third week of our Queer Horror month and we are gabbing it up about 2014’s ‘Lyle.’ Some have described this film as the “Lesbian Rosemary’s Baby.” But we explore why that is a reductive assertion. And joining us on the show is the wonderful comedy writer Monica Vasandani. She is a mother herself and she sheds some light on the nuances of parenthood presented in the film. Plus, we take a quiz on “horrified movie mothers.” And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, the problem with Netflix and James Gunn pitches a cannibalistic Gilligan’s Island movie.
